A NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY bestseller
“This character-driven romance will enthrall [Rivers’s] many fans.” Library Journal
The New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love returns to her romance roots with this unexpected and redemptive love story, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpiece.
A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want―money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist―an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.
Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together . . . until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship―and both their lives―forever.
“Rivers deftly threads Roman’s and Grace’s lives together as they tiptoe around their emotional scars, eventually shifting into a dance of tentative steps toward a love neither can resist. Fans of Christian romance will delight in this tale of salvation through love.” Kirkus Reviews
“Richly detailed characters with traumatic pasts are woven together with biblical truths and redemptive themes. . . . This is an amazing, beautifully written tale to be savored and pondered and shared with others.” Romantic Times
“Readers will marvel at Rivers’s storytelling arc encompassing the reconciliation of gritty past misdeeds and the work in progress of a life of forgiveness.” Booklist
“Fans of Francine Rivers will eagerly devour The Masterpiece and find exactly what they are looking for: a beautifully written story of faith, romance, and the power that true freedom can bring.” Bookreporter.com

Another great book.
I have been a fan of Francine Rivers for years. Redeeming Love has been my favorite book since I was a teenage. Masterpiece is a lovely story of forgiveness, and the struggle of finding acceptance within yourself. Life has a way getting messy and especially if you have a less than perfect childhood. All those hurts get carried into your adult life. It appears one is Trying to navigate through life with a broken compass and disillusionment about what true happiness actually is. Once both protagonists find their worth in Jesus. The Master-craftsman can truly create his masterpiece in them.
Another “masterpiece” by Francine Rivers
I am OBSESSED with Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. When she released this book, I bought it and decided to give another one of her novels a try. I couldn’t put it down! The story is compelling and she does an excellent job of developing the characters. I was hooked on finding out how the story would end for Roman and Grace. She did a wonderful job of hitting real world topics and obstacles that Christians face today. There were times I felt that the writing was kinda cheesy though, and this is why I decided to give it 4 stars. Overall, I recommend this boom if you’re looking for an uplifting story that has some thought provoking messages in it! We are all a Masterpiece of God no matter our background or where we come from ❤️
This book is the best book I’ve read since Redeeming Love. I couldn’t put it down. Francine Rivers is my favorite author!
